I’m SO glad you loved my Gift Guide for the Toddler! I have that ultimate Gift Guide for the Healthy Cook now! I’ll start by saying, I literally own every one of these products (or a spin on them) and so they’ve been tested to the nines in my own kitchen. I can wholeheartedly tell you these are my favorite things and would make amazing gifts!
Let’s get started!
Every kitchen needs a KitchenAid mixer! I have the mixer in copper…and raspberry ice…and in the matte grey mini. I keep the copper on my counter at ALL times and it literally makes me happy just looking at it. I use it for cakes, cookies, frosting, mashed potatoes (yup)…everything. Then there’s also my favorite attachment, the spiralizer. It’s the one attachment I blab about over and over, so you definitely need it. If you don’t have the mixer or can’t gift one, then a countertop spiralizer is a must. I’ll say, also, if you’re a cookie maker, you need cookie scoops! They make it so easy and uniform, every time.
I used to be solely a French Press gal…until I got a Chemex. After a YouTube video or two, I mastered the brewing technique and I love it. If you have a coffee lover in your life, buy them one! Plus, as a gift set with a pour-over kettle, food scale (for precise ground bean measuring) and a milk frother, you’re the best gifter of the year!
Ask me sometime for the story on how I bought my Nespresso Pixi machine. It was a glorious experience. But let me just say, I LOVE having an espresso maker on my counter. I use it for hot or iced lattes. Paired with an electric frother, it’s the next best thing to Starbucks (and saves me lots of money when I dedicate myself to using solely the machine).
I am not a huge juicer, but some people are religious about it. I love the juicer we have and always kick myself for not using it more. Plus, paired with cute juice jars, juicing is just more fun at home!
Ok, I’m totally a huge spokesperson for the Echo Dot now. I absolutely love mine so much that I bought another one just for my bedroom. So how is this “kitchen relevant”? Well, I use it to play music in my kitchen all day AND I ask it to set timers as I’m cooking. I no longer have to set and cancel timers, I just throw something in the oven and ask Alexa to set a timer, then I go about making more stuff. It’s become my ultimate kitchen tool.
Sheet pans are a tough subject. I actually like that my traditional ones look like they’re a hundred years old, but sometimes that’s not the best thing for cooking. I’ve found that the Goldtouch Sheetpans from Williams-Sonoma are just the best. I wish I had more, since I only have one (and a loaf pan in the Goldtouch). They look beautiful, bake evenly, clean nicely and are just super high quality.
Le Creuset is my favorite cookware. I can’t help it. It’s beautiful and timeless. I really want a 7qt size of their dutch oven. With all of the beautiful colors, how does one choose?! White please…or teal! (I have three different pots from them and use them every single day)
Finally, Swell Bottles. I have two in two different sizes. They’re my favorite water bottles and I carry one around at all times. If your healthy cook friend loves a beautiful water bottle, go with a Swell!
I hope this helped you pick a gift or twelve for the healthy cook in your life! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me anything.
